They are incredibly reliable. They shoot muddy, wet, or frozen. Every few thousand rounds you need to replace a spring, and once every 5000 or so the trigger sear. Other then that just squirt em with a little WD-40 at the end of the hunt. I NEVER clean them inside, even after many thousands of duck and goose loads. Just hose them out with WD and sit them barrel down till the excess runs off so as not to weaken the wood.
You see a lot of A-5's on used gun racks for $400-$600. I've paid big dollars for a SBEII that sucked, and several over and unders just to have something lighter for quail and pheasants. But all I ever really shoot now is the A-5's. Part of that is growing up on them and getting used to the high receiver, i just shoot them better.
The new A-5's are A-5's in name only. They have a completely different operating system that is more like a Benelli or a Beretta then a real A-5.
